Liverpool’s Emre Can has been left out of Germany’s provisional 27-man squad for the World Cup, while injured Manuel Neuer is included.

Germany head coach Joachim Low has selected four Premier League players including Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil and Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger along with Manchester City’s Leroy Sane and Ilkay Gundogan.

World Cup-winning goalscorer, Mario Gotze has also been left out of Germany’s squad. The Borussia Dortmund striker scored in extra time against Argentina in 2014 to seal Germany’s fourth World Cup.

It has also been announced that manager Joachim Low has extended his contract until 2022.

They are joined by Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger and Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil.

Ozil and Gundogan have been criticised by the German Football Federation (DFB) for posing in photos with Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Germany are in Group F with Mexico, Sweden and South Korea, and play their first match on Sunday, 17 June.
